The ASCII Group Announces Influential Service To Help Solution Providers Manage Their Social Media Presence

Bethesda, MD /PRNewswire/ - The ASCII Group, Inc. (ASCII), the nation's oldest and most established community of independent solution providers, has announced an innovative and unique social media service to help ASCII members manage and increase their presence on social media outlets.

The new service provides automated communication three times daily during the normal business week to popular social media outlets including Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.

Jerry Koutavas, President of The ASCII Group, stated, "We recognize that 95% of the solution providers today show little to no activity on the social media accounts they have set up.

This service aims squarely at providing our members consistency and a real jump start in showing an active presence in the social media world for their business."

MJ Shoer, President of Jenaly Technology Group in Portsmouth, NH, has been an ASCII member since 1999. Mr. Shoer is very excited about this new program because of the dramatic effect it will have on his social media strategy. He remarked, "I believe most of my peers would agree with me that this is a necessary touch point that is not being managed to the benefit of our businesses. With social media it is all about being consistent and active with your communication, and ASCII's service hits that straight on by jump starting activities on our behalf and ensuring we are consistent once things are set up."

The new service is being announced to membership today at no additional cost for the benefit of the ASCII solution provider community.
